GameSpy - Different doesn't automatically mean worse. It also doesn't necessarily mean better. With that understood, I can tell you that Hitman: Absolution is unquestionably different to its predecessors. Whether that's an improvement, though, mostly comes down to whether you enjoyed the prior games for what they actually are, or the ideas behind their glitchy executions. Either way, this is certainly the easiest of the Hitman series to dive into. The question remains, though, whether IO Interactive has sacrificed too much to give Agent 47 a triumphant return.
